Performance

A great show on the final stages of the 1st North American leg of the Popmart tour, Bono is in good form so he's able to sing without too many problems tonight and the band are tight and make sure to put in a performance with little to no mistakes on their end of the show so, it's easy to say that they're having a good night here when it comes to how they're playing on stage tonight.

Sound

Pretty good recording for this 3 AUD film merge but it, unfortunately, has the issue that I mentioned in the audience section of the review, luckily the band are clearly audible so you'll have no trouble hearing what they're doing tonight but for the audience, you'll have to listen more carefully in order to hear them.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

Audience

Not going to lie here, the recording I used for the show which, was the 3 camera merge did show some nice audience participation in spots but, due to the recording I couldn't really hear them in spots either that or I had to listen carefully in order to hear them but, from what I heard they were good.

Overall

In conclusion for being one of the final shows of the opening North American leg of the Popmart tour, I have to say that it's quite a good one due to the fact that everyone's in good form tonight and the band are delivering some nice performances. Also, tonight sadly features the final performance of If God Will Send His Angels which, would be replaced by New Year's Day on the following night so, it adds some historical value to the show due to this.
Highlights for me included:
Mofo
I Will Follow
Gone
Last Night On Earth
If God Will Send His Angels
Edge's Karaoke Segment
Miami/Bullet The Blue Sky
Please/Where The Streets Have No Name
Discotheque/If You Wear That Velvet Dress
Mysterious Ways
